AHHHHH!!! Friday is now complete. Thanks Balph!

Are you tired of...well a lot of stuff?

(but not tired of the f word?)

WARNING - I SHOULD HAVE PUT A NSFW WARNING on that last link - b/c it is fucking replete with the fucking f-word all fucking through the fucking thing. Fuck.

James Bond will return in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang...

redrabbitblue said...

Producer Ryan said...

Ralph - The 'lars lounge at the end of the show is fucking rad.

Chris - I made the same joke to Ralph last night. I don't think he cared much for it.

Anyone going to be in D.C. in the next few weeks? Make sure that you stop by the National Portrait Museum.

redrabbitblue said...

MB pt @ but it really is three thanks for the shout out you crack me up sorry mc cracks me up you just get dissed

redrabbitblue said...

ralphapela gets my vote

Jimmy said...

Less than a week...hard to believe!

stephsmith said...

Indeed.

Trevor McFur said...

Thanks for the link Steph. I was glad that my picks made it to the show, but was mortified to hear that I had said, 'The Muppest Take Manhatten' as my first pick. I must have had a brain cramp, because that movie stinks. I had meant to pick, 'The Great Muppet Caper', which is a true work of art. I stand by 'Breakin' 2: Electric Bugaloo', though.

I wouldn't take health advice from Stallone. Have you seen him without make-up, wig, and with his hearing aid?

Cloverfield is the best monster movie I have ever seen. It's the only one I've seen. I need to stick Godzilla in my queue.

chris/ghostwatch was pretty hilarious.

good, fun podcast.

takes balls to put your karaoke out there for everyone, ralph. either that or too much alcohol. :)

redrabbitblue said...

Anbody else having problems with there sound on shows they bought thru i tunes?

Ralph- said...

Legendary songwriter, producer, arranger Rod Temperton has a career that has spanned 3 decades to date. Leader of the disco-fusion band Heatwave, Rod Temperton's excellence started back in the '70s with hits including "Always &Forever", "Boogie Nights" and "Grooveline". Whilst continuing to write for Heatwave, Rod worked on various outside projects and his work soon became highly sought after. During the eighties Rod worked on a multitude of successful albums from artists such as George Benson, Herbie Hancock, Aretha Franklin, Patti Austin and Michael McDonald to name but a few, and the hits kept on coming. "Baby Come To Me", "Gimme The Night", "Ya Mo Be There" and "Love X Love" were just some of the classic tracks penned by Rod at this time. Perhaps best known for his work with Michael Jackson - Rod Temperton not only wrote "Thriller", one of the greatest songs of all time but also "Off The Wall", "Rock With You", "Lady Of My Life" and "Baby Be Mine". Rod Temperton's reputation precedes him, he is responsible some of the finest moments in songwriting history. His classic tracks stand the test of time and his musical future looks as bright as his past with his unique style very much in demand.

PalmerEldritch said...

this Rod Temperton sounds like a talented individual.

also sounds like a James Bond character.

Ralph- said...

He is British and looks like a "Bad Guy" from a Don Bluth movie about rats.

Jimmy said...

What's with your avatar, Ralph?

casey_donahue said...

those two avatars next to each other makes me laugh

oh, and glad I can provide you with the shittiest listening experience of a piece of Giacchino music you will ever have ralph!

Ralph- said...

anyone catch Rambo?

Ralph- said...

you have to see the larger version of my avatar, jimmy!

Ralph- said...

also, i cant believe that this is the first time Jimmy has seen this pic. it has been around for some time. i now have a full head of hair and my beard is bigger. : )

casey_donahue said...

hey ralph, or anyone else who might know

(when) is the season 3 soundtrack coming out? its getting pretty late, like really late.

MB said...

Just saw Cloverfield (even though I should be recording my seg by now - I needed to do something fun after driving in the snow) - quite the nail biter1 If I give even my short review I'll kind of spoil it, so I'll give a couple of positives:

- edge of my seat - whole time - holy crap!

- handheld cam didn't bother me at all - it was working for me

- plenty of holy shit moments

I'm gonna continue this on the boards

andrew. said...

The best part of seeing Cloverfield is that i can now listen to the latest 'Lars episode (that i had to turn off when Ralph & Ben announced they were going into full spoiler mode)

the movie itself: ehhhhhh...

Chris JC said...

The podcast is all indexed with chapter breaks (certainly the iTunes version is) so I just flipped ahead through the Cloverfield review (although I suspect it contained the word "awesome"), so I was still able to enjoy the songwriting of Rod Templeton, as well as the vocal prowess of Ralph D. Apel.

It's f**king LOST Week people!

PalmerEldritch said...

not only am i psyched for Lost on thursday, i'm psyched for the Pop-Up Video version of the season 3 finale on Wednesday night. w00t!

speaking of psyched, did anyone catch Psych on Friday? Telemundo was supposed to do a Spanish re-broadcast but failed to do so. bastards. errr... !bastardos!

Chris JC said...

"Pop-Up Video version of the season 3 finale on Wednesday night"

WHAT!?

This is the first I've heard of this - is it pretty much as it sounds? A factoid filled version of the finale?

I may need to know exactly what it's called to, er, satisfy my curiosity...

PalmerEldritch said...

Lost Season 3 Finale "Enhanced" on the 30th

Chris JC said...

You lovely man.

Now I can... be happy that I have the knowledge that this exist.

So, come Friday, I'll go to Cloverfield and use my computer to READ all about that LOST finale, as well as the premiere of Season 4 so that I can be all up to speed and things.

Yes.

memphish said...

Everyone must go watch the final mobisode. It will freak you out. That's a spoiler-free direct link.

Holli

Chris JC said...

Thanks Holli - the first mobisode I actually watched, and it's the last one.

From reading those comments, though, I probably me a wise choice there.

Chris JC said...

I probably MADE a wise choice, too.

PalmerEldritch said...

HOLY FUCKATRON!

that blew my mind.

stephsmith said...

Not only the best Mobisode ever, could be one of the best scenes of the whole, entire show!!!

redrabbitblue said...

redrabbitblue said...

I got frickin goose bumps

PalmerEldritch said...

memphish said...

I put a new thread in the LOST section for the mobisode. So come on over and chime in.

redrabbitblue said...

wow ididnt know you could slurr your type buttt i prove you can

PalmerEldritch said...

i'm just glad that the word "type" is in that sentence.

Ralph- said...

i read this on MI6.co.uk

Quan-tum (n. pl.) - a portion, or quantity; one that can be measured; the smallest discreet quantity

Sol-ace (n.) - Comfort in sorrow; grief or misfortune

PalmerEldritch said...

still a stinky name.

we'll see if it grows on us (like a rash or a fungus).

memphish said...

So when do I get part 3 of my TLI Losties? I tried out the 99 Things podcast mentioned by Handsome Jack and it's no where near as good or laugh inducing as the TLI LOSTies.

Holli

Ralph- said...

Rash or a Fungus would be a good bond title.

Did anyone see the Lost Missing Pieces where Jin is playing Golf? i thought it was strange that they broke their own rules by putting in the english subtitles when it isnt jin talking to sun.

usually if anyone else hears jin talking, there are no subtitles.

memphish said...

I thought the same thing about Jin and the rules when they did that Ralph. Don't know what to make of it since Damon and Carlton are apparently on WGA solidarity radio silence.

AHHHHH - holy crap! just watched the mobisode. WTF?!?!?

I don't know what to say

PalmerEldritch said...

mb, come over to the BBS and say whatever you can.

FutureAlly said...

good one, holli.

greenracoonorange said...

Before we all get crazy trying to figure out the mobisode, do we know for sure that the mobisodes are meant to mean anything? I mean, has it been said that they for sure fit into the grand scheme of things? Because when I have watched all the mobisodes up to now, I have always felt that they were just deleted scenes made to look nice to appease cranky viewers not getting their favourite show.

memphish said...

The mobisodes were created by Damon and Carlton to tell legit. canon that they weren't going to have time to get to on the show. That's how to read them.

Holli

Ralph- said...

so i caught up on the Lost Missing Pieces. They are alright. That last one with Vincent, is probably something lame, and didnt actually happen. i am sure that it is all a metaphor or symbolism. Also, if it were important, they would have put it on the show.

Also, "The Envelope" is the best one of all of the mobisodes, for one reason...or should i say.....two reasons, JULIET picking up muffins!


boobs.

PACBC96 said...

Bummer on the wisdom teeth. I had all four of mine out as well, and two days later I sneezed so hard that I popped all the stitches out. I still cry a little every time I think about it.

Ralph- said...

well, my jaw is feeling better and i am eating solid food.....BUT, as my jaw and teeth holes started to feel better over the weekend, i did notice that my tongue hurt and there was a sharp sensation in my jaw.......... UH OHHHH!!!!! BONE FRAGMENT!!!!

i can feel it scraping my tongue against the piece that is trying to work it's way out of my gums! gross.

But i am hoping to get it removed tomorrow.

FutureAlly said...

jesus! that sounds awful, thankfully i didn't sneeze when i had mine taken out. but then again, i was passed out from taking pain meds all weekend, so i don't remember much.

only one gave me trouble, because they had to cut it out and then they stitched me up. but it never really hurt, since the doc told me to just keep taking the meds every few hours and to not let it go too long in b/w otherwise it would hurt.

now that i think about it, it prob wasn't the best idea to be constantly taking prescription pills all weekend, but thankfully i survived.

elias said...

Yes - boobs.

PalmerEldritch said...

ralph, read any literature that they gave you. i was supposed to have been gargling with salt water or something after i had my wisdom teeth out. i never read the literature that they gave me so i was in for a follow up and the doctor guy said "so, you've been gargling salt water every day?"

"what?! uh... yes?"

FutureAlly said...

i think ralph was too busy scaring children with coughing up blood to be reading.

i had to go to a follow up appt. because i had this weird pain in the one that they had stitched up. turned out that air had gotten caught in there and it was causing it to hurt.

wisdom teeth removal is not fun. but i'm glad we all get to share the experience.

memphish said...

In case you were wondering people are stupid and here's the proof: Alvin and the Chipmunks reached the $200 mil plateau. Source EW.com

Ugghh!

Holli
Who put $11 into that calculation.

PACBC96 said...

When my friend got his wisdom teeth out, he was doing ok until a weeke after, when he started getting a dull pain in one of the holes. On a whim, he started gargling with warm salt water, and a WHOLE big fucking elbow noodle came out of the hole! But I don't feel bad for him, 'cause he is currently banging a hot Russian stripper.

FutureAlly said...

so who's watching this movie? it seems like it's geared towards adults, but kids seem to be attracted to it.

remember that show lost? it's coming back this week!

FutureAlly said...

wow! that sounds painful. on the other hand, i guess things are looking up for your friend.

PalmerEldritch said...

gargled that noodle right out of his mouth. and, on the plus side, now he's putting his noodle in an attractive woman!

PalmerEldritch said...

ally, that tub full of cheetos looks, dare i say, "dangerously cheesy."

FutureAlly said...

dangerously cheesy, indeed.

ralph- it was an "air pocket" it's what i was told, anyway.

Producer Ryan said...

From IMDb:

Daniel Craig has defended the title of the next James Bond film, insisting the phrase Quantum Of Solace in integral to the plot..."The statement is an (Bond creator) Ian Fleming statement. It comes from the idea that in a relationship, if you don't have a quantum of solace left in your relationship, then give up. Where Bond is left at the end of the last movie (2006's Casino Royale), his heart's been broken and he doesn't have that quantum of solace, he doesn't have that ... closure on what happened in his life and he needs to find out. What is great about it is it also applies to something very important in the plot."

Ralph who can't sign in said...

i stand by the fact that the Title shouldn't have to be defended. It is Fleming's title, which let me know that the producers are continuing the series on the right track. as long as Fleming's Bond comes through, they could call it "The Hildebrand Rarity" for all i care.


Chronological Bond

stephsmith said...

I can live with the title as long as it turns out to be as kidck-ass as Casino Royale.
Is there anyone here who hasn't had their wisdom teeth removed? I have.

Jordan from the 206 said...

I haven't. I had some jaw pain once a couple years ago, but my dentist said it had nothing to do with wisdom teeth. Apparently some people never have to have them taken out. X-rays show I have only 3 for some reason. And to this date, I haven't had any issues. Let's hope it stays that way. (fingers crossed)

redrabbitblue said...

Doggie cam rules

FutureAlly said...

I used to have a lot of headaches before I had them taken out, i'm 98% better now. I have the occasional headache but it's not constant like it was before. I had all 4 but only had 3 taken out, since I had another tooth taken out due to a bad root canal, the wisdom tooth next to it, took its place. It's pretty weird when you see it in an X-ray, because from outside it looks normal, but the root is leaning to make the tooth fit the other one's place.
